Low back pain (LBP) is a common condition for which individuals seek care. The associated physical limitations often persist beyond discharge from medical care, and many of these individuals will seek advice from strength and conditioning professionals. Although there are many ways to manage physical limitations associated with LBP, a training program that serves the purpose of improving spinal conditioning while avoiding the exacerbation and recurrence of symptoms is ideal. Therefore, the purpose of this article is to educate the reader on common pathologies associated with LBP and general movement patterns that would prevent the exacerbation and recurrence of symptoms.
